An evil genius in a flying fortress is trying to kidnap the birds of the fire, ice, and lightning islands in hopes of luring the sea power, Lugia, and controlling the world. Ash and his friends, in the process of carrying out an island tradition that requires visiting those three islands, discover the plot and try to stop it. Even the comic villains, Team Rocket, turn good and help out in the end against the threat of world destruction. And Pokemon assemble from all around the world in case they can be of help (but they end up helping only the merchandising). Written by

In the Japanese version, the collector's ship scene where Tracey (Kenji) points out that combining water and electricity breaks down hydrogen and oxygen, and fire igniting those gases creates an explosion. Then he warns Ash (Satoshi), Misty (Kasumi), and Melody (Fluera) to duck. This was cut from the U.S. dub. See more »
Near the end of the film before Melody plays Lugia's song, the song starts playing before she puts the shell/flute in her mouth. See more »
[Japanese Version only scene]
It's a Water Gun/10,000 volts combo. Once the water is affected by the electricity, it separates, becoming H2 and O. And with the Flamethrower... Everybody duck!

Team Rocket emerge from the water partly into the credits, upset that no one will know of their good-doings, but Slowking appears and shows that the film's audience has just seen them do good. See more »
I for one, and seeing on the internet I am pleased that there are others that are still unashamed pokemon fans out there It really has been so long since I saw the film. I saw the first and loved it and loved this one first, if this one had come out first then the fan base would've remained stronger and not cut the fans in half.
Half leaving and half staying. New Pokemon were brought in this film, they came in the first one as well and then after this there were so many it got ridiculous.
But as someone hoping to be a filmmaker one day, I plan to make a pokemon film for the devoted unashamed fans just to stand up for us, and put us all to rest.
I love the animation in this film, I love Lugias song. I thought it was funny and moving. I better grab this and the first on DVD before the disappear in obscurity
